Root Canals

When deep cavities or untreated tooth decay reach the sensitive part inside your tooth, they can cause infection and severe pain. This and other reasons, including cracks, injuries, or repeated stress on a tooth, can result in the need for a root canal.

If you want to save your tooth, visit our team at Peerzada Smiles. We employ the latest techniques and equipment to perform the root canal efficiently and restore your oral health.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a dental procedure performed to rescue a severely damaged or infected tooth. The process begins with your dentist numbing the area with local anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Next, they create a small opening to access the infected area, remove the damaged pulp, and clean the inside of the tooth. Afterward, the dental professional fills the space with a special material and seals the tooth to protect it from future infections.

When Do You Need a Root Canal?

You may need a root canal if you experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • A persistent and intense toothache, especially when chewing or applying pressure.
  • Sharp pain or sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures even after the stimulus is removed.
  • Swelling around the affected tooth.
  • A pimple-like bump on your gum near a tooth, which can be a sign of an abscess.
  • Darkening or discoloration of a tooth.

Is a Root Canal Painful?

Modern root canal procedures are generally not painful because we use local anesthesia to numb the affected area. You might experience some pressure, but the discomfort should be minimal.

However, if you experience persistent pain, bleeding, or swelling several days after the procedure, please contact our professionals to seek treatment.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Root Canal?

Recovery from a root canal is swift and most patients can return to their regular activities immediately. You might experience mild discomfort or soreness for a few days, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
